new yarn! launching friday

Hello, everyone

Things have been a bit quiet around here – largely because I’m busy working on the Knitting Season club. As well as the designs, the club involves a 12-week essay series (a course, if you like) exploring a range of different approaches to creative practice. These essays are polemical, and are meant to prompt reflection (or even argument), in a way that (hopefully) enables everyone to define and explore their own creative approach. It’s a rather different kind of writing to what I’ve been doing of late, and I’m really enjoying it – though the process can be somewhat all-consuming (this amount of focus leaves me feeling a bit unkempt and wild of eye). If you aren’t a club member, the series will be published as a book later this Spring.

Anyway, I just thought I’d pop in and let you know the exciting news that our new yarn will be launching this weekend. Knitting Season club members will get a first look at it, together with a brand new pattern, first thing on Friday morning; then there will be a post here with all the information you need about the yarn (probably around lunchtime) and the yarn itself will be available in our shop that day too.

This yarn is a very different – but very beautiful – addition to the KDD range. It has been produced in collaboration with a supplier with whom we’ve had a really productive and mutually supportive relationship for many years. I’m really looking forward to sharing it with you.

See you on Friday!
